  Management Software

Business Wire

MELVILLE, N.Y. -- May 15, 2013

Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, announced the
release of uniFLOW v5.2 print and scan management software, offering improved
installation and usability, fully integrated print room management, and
enhanced mobile and cloud printing capabilities, including support for Google
Cloud Print™.

Canon’s exclusive uniFLOW software provides businesses the ability to
consolidate enterprise output management into a single, unified platform for
device management, secure printing, document routing and accounting, mobile
solutions and cloud capabilities. uniFLOW v5.2 adds production printing
modules that enable organizations to manage and utilize their corporate
reprographic departments (CRD) in conjunction with their office print and scan
infrastructure from one platform.

“More than 1,000 improvements were made to the uniFLOW platform based on
customer feedback and real-world implementations,” said Sam Yoshida, vice
president and general manager, Marketing, Business Imaging Solutions Group,
Canon U.S.A. “By incorporating print management, scanning workflow, mobile
printing and CRD processes into one solution, uniFLOW v5.2 may help customers
save on the additional training, IT infrastructure, and support costs that
would likely be needed if those functions were implemented separately.”

New features and benefits of uniFLOW v5.2 include:

  *Improved Usability: End-users of uniFLOW will now see a more intuitive
    interface, featuring a streamlined platform that allows IT administrators
    to more easily configure the system through wizards without having to rely
    on additional support. The new Quick Start screen will take the installer,
    step-by-step, through the entire configuration process, simplifying setup
    of even the most complicated workflows.
  *New Print Room/CRD Integration: With new print room management features,
    uniFLOW v5.2 provides a complete, single platform solution to help
    organizations manage both their office print and scan infrastructure and
    their in-house print room operations. These features allow operators to
    manage their entire print room, controlling tasks that range from job
    submission to intake. Print volume can be more effectively managed by
    automatically rerouting large print jobs from office multifunction devices
    to a central print room. Additionally, integration with the optional Océ
    PRISMAprepare document preparation software can help print room operators
    streamline the make-ready process.
  *Enhanced Mobile/Cloud Support: uniFLOW’s existing mobile printing
    functionality has been further improved by providing new ways for mobile
    users to submit print jobs from their devices. uniFLOW 5.2 now includes
    support for the Google Cloud Print service, allowing customers who have
    purchased Google Chromebook PCs to print securely and have their jobs
    accounted for in the same way as other Windows or Mac users. Jobs can be
    submitted to Google Cloud Print from any PC running Google Chrome™ as well
    as Android and iOS smartphones and tablets.
  *Enhanced Scanning Functionality: Scanning has been an integral part of
    uniFLOW since version 5.0, and with uniFLOW v5.2, many improvements have
    been implemented based on customer feedback. In this release the
    SharePoint connection has been greatly improved, and the capability to
    browse and scan into any system that supports the WebDAV protocol, which
    is used by many document management systems, has been added.

uniFLOW v5.2 is available through Canon Authorized Dealers and Canon Solutions
America. For more information please visit
